Most of Jim Anderson’s handmade stoneware pottery is thrown on a potter's wheel. No "ram press" or "slip cast" methods are used. Because each piece is handmade there will be variations in the sizes of the items and the finish of the glaze which attributes to both the beauty and the curse of handmade pottery. He uses the best quality stoneware clay available and mixes his glazes by hand. His pottery is dishwasher safe, nontoxic, oven proof, and can be used in the microwave.
